I bought this 53 back in April. It was borderline saving then and a few days after I got it home, a tornado hit and blew a big oak over the quarters and top. That sent it over the edge. So, today was an unusually beautiful day here (74 and sunny). So I took off work and my Grandson and I started stripping. Here's a few shots.

As you could see it is a champion, but it has a 51-52 V/8

It had a really nice steering wheel.

There is definately a line where saving is just not worth it.
I love that carb. What is the model on those L shaped carbs? I am pretty sure they are Strombergs, but I am curious what model?
I have a WW on my 289 and a UVB26AA on my 232, but I love the look of those.
Do they perform well?

Dick, what mufflers did you run on that car?

I'm trying to figure out what mufflers to run with my Silvertone duals on the Wagon.

Dick, I always assumed that car was a trailer queen only,as I've only seen pics of it in shows, guess I was wrong.
Sounds good.

Even a queen needs someone to ride her; otherwise, there would be no line of succession.

Thats very cool.

All my best ideas are stolen from friends ;)



Plenty of good and desirable parts on that '53 Starliner, Tex. It's a shame a tree fell on it, but the parts that are left will make some other C/K owners very happy (and put some money in your pocket to boot).
